As many of you know, last year was an eye-opener for me when it came to my health. After having to spend some time in the hospital due to the food that I had been eating, I realized that it was time for me to focus on taking care of myself. I couldn’t depend on my youth any longer, and I really had to start making better decisions when it came to my lifestyle.
But how do you erase years of bad habits and bad food choices?
You start at the beginning.
I had to learn everything all over again. This meant that I spend a lot of time reading health and fitness articles and educating myself about proper diet and exercise regimens. It was perhaps the most interesting education I had ever received because I was applying what I was reading and watching the results. I discovered food that I would have never found on my own, and this past year has really provided a variety of meals that has made losing weight fun.
While I have been seeing some results, I know that I have a long way to go, and learning about the many ways I can make healthy choices will be something that never stops. All this time invested will be worth it as I will apply what I learn and continue to take care of myself.
I think that I am better for it.
